Hi all,

Speaking about the pieces of technology which are important, and for which it would be good to have a security review : the Service Worker is in First Public Working Draft, see http://www.w3.org/TR/2014/WD-service-workers-20140508/

Abstract :
This specification describes a method that enables applications to take advantage of persistent background processing, including hooks to enable bootstrapping of web applications while offline.
The core of this system is an event-driven Web Worker, which responds to events dispatched from documents and other sources. A system for managing installation, versions, and upgrades is provided.
The Service Worker is a generic entry point for event-driven background processing in the Web Platform that is extensible by other specifications.

You could also read the security considerations (http://www.w3.org/TR/2014/WD-service-workers-20140508/#security-considerations) and start thinking if they cover all the attacks, including offline ones... (yes, this is a call for volunteer to review the spec :)
